Alcala: new text font available from 205

Alcalá is based on the document “Biblia poliglota complutense”, aka Bible polyglotte d'Alcalá.
It was the first edition of a complete polyglot Bible, as well as the first printed version of New Testament in Greek, the Seventy and Targoum Onkelos. Conceived between 1502 and 1517, it was thought, financed and largely by cardinal Francisco Gimenez de Cisneros.
The first drawings go back to 1995. A second version was started in 2011 in order to answer the ordering of a publisher to compose a Bible based on the translation revised of J. N. Darby in French and Madagascan. Drawings are optimized for uses in small sizes.

Norr on typographe.com

An article writen by Franck Adebiaye on Le Typographe": http://www.typographe.com/

205 publishing house (books and fonts) launches a new font family!
Norr: Composed of 4 cuts (Sans, Round, Fine and Brick), this font traverses 4 typographical universes with the characteristic to have an identical width for all styles for a simplified use.

I began this font 15 years ago on the study of the document "Biblia poliglota complutense".
I decided to reconsider this font because of the ask of a publishing house to design layouts for Bibles.
It will be available in roman, italic and bold with small capitals and oldstyle figures.
Available on March 2011 on http://www.editions205.fr

A new font is under development: North (sans, rounded, didone and slab serif).

LeFrançois is a typeface in OpenType format based on 3 series of capitals.
It seems to be classical but some glyphs show that it's not so conventional.
It's seems to be a typical French type, that's why its name is LeFrançois (with the accent please !)
With a particular work on kerning (about 5000 !) and ligatures, you'll be able to compose words as logotypes thanks to capitals and small caps.
It will be soon available at http://www.editions205.fr
